START UP NOISE
« on: March 30, 2004, 01:25:06 AM »
Booting up my computer, it makes  a "loud" winding noise. No knocks or extra noise etc. but sometimes "huffs" until everything gets loaded upon my desktop. Then the computer's "effort" stops and reaches its equilibrium and works normal.   ???

P.S. I have an Authentic  AMD Duron processor (700mH) and Maxtor hard drive if this matters

Open up your computer case, start up your computer and try to pinpoint where it is coming from. It could be the fan on your CPU or the Fan on your Video card.  It could be your Hard drive.

A month ago I changed my CPU fan and that didn't fix the problem, and a couple of weeks ago I went to the Maxtor website to do a diagnostic check on my hard drive and I had a difficult time complteing this due to issues with my floppy drive.  In the mean time how do I check my video card because something tells me this may the cause. ???
